• The Biplane Forum is a large global active community of biplane builders, owners and pilots. From Pitts to Skybolts, to older barnstormers, all types are welcome. In addition to our active community, our content boasts exhaustive technical information which is often sought after for projects and maintenance. This information has accumulated over the 12+ years the forum has been in existence.

    The Biplane Forum is a private community. Subscriptions are only $29.95/year to gain access to this great community and unmatched source of information not found anywhere else on the web. We are also a great resource for non biplane users, since many GA aircraft are built the same way (fabric and tube construction).

Yes I have photos but I don't know how to post them.
If you e mail me I could do it that way.
I am lowering the price to $3000 now. But can't deliver at that price.
This sounds like the old story I need money for my Mother's operation
But I need it for my daughter she is very ill and needs money.

Dennis,

I'm very sorry to hear about your daughter's health problem.

I'd be happy to post the photos for you. Are you still using the jaxsheriff email address?

Going to ask a question for another. Is all this a good platform for building an S1-T?

The S-1T fuselage is very different due the the wings being moved forward and all the other changes that come along with the new wing location. It would be much better to start from scratch if you could find definition of the T fuselage -- no plans were ever released.

I have a set of S1-S and from speaking with Aviat was under the impression the only difference in the T was the wings were moved forward 4+(have it wrote down somewhere) inches to adjust the cg with the added bigger engine.

Only? May apply for new build but even 1" is big change for retrofit. Maybe no big deal if cabanes and I-struts not built yet?

If I was younger(and wasn't married) my truck would be half way/stopping for gas in SC already............

(Maybe I could hide them in a buddy's hangar.........?)

Need to just stop thinking about another Pitts!

As Jack says, that's a huge change. Given that the angles of the tubes change significantly the loads on those tubes would have to be looked at to see if any of the normal S-1S tube sizes need to change. Unless you're friendly with an engineer familiar with aircraft structures that step alone could be pretty expensive. Yes, you could just use the S-1S tubing sizes but that may leave you with a weakened structure.

I can't imagine making his change to an existing fuselage.

Maybe, now, you guys know why I stick with models. I can make anything happen with wood in a matter of minutes. "If" I knew how to fly I would absolutely love to build a real one of any category.

Somebody better jump or I will. Problem, Skybolt, RV8, M12 and a 1946 BC12 already in work------ Guess that's a good problem to have. This deal is very tempting.
